Welcome to the Ways to Wellbeing radio show, where we explore all the different ways to achieve good health and wellbeing. I'm your host, Miriam Henke, psychologist and life coach with an interest in integrative and mind-body medicine.

In this episode we explore Natural Birth and how you can look after yourself physically, mentally and emotionally before, during and after your baby's birth. My special guest is Heather Mattner, co-author of "Better Birth", who has an extensive background in midwifery, maternal and infant health, and is also a psychologist. 

Heather tells us all about what it means to have an "unaffected" birth, what natural birth is, home birthing, and so much more. She shares how mindfulness can be an invaluable skill to learn that can help in pregnancy, during labour, and after birth as a women is learning how to be a mum.
